Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On June 2, 2005, the Company announced that Certain Underwriters at Lloyd’s of London have agreed to drop their complaint against the Company and join with SPACEHAB in pursuit of its claims with NASA for reimbursement of loss for its Research Double Module in the STS-107 Space Shuttle Columbia accident.


SPACEHAB and the Underwriters have agreed to jointly pursue recovery against NASA with SPACEHAB leading the appeals process. The Underwriters will participate in a recovery, if any, net of legal costs, in accordance with a pre-agreed schedule which limits SPACEHAB’s liability with the Underwriters to $500,000. Also in accordance with the agreement, the Underwriters will dismiss their complaint against SPACEHAB with prejudice.
